The Y-Lock connector family is combining a space saving and process securing design with smart and reliable technology. The connector system is designed for applications with tough requirements. Available in three different versions, Y-Lock can fulfill a large spectrum of tasks regarding mechanical, climatic, and electrical specifications.
The special feature of all Y-Lock versions is the One-Push-Lock mechanism. I.e., the FFC is plugged in and locks either by itself or via a stiffener, which provides additional locking and guiding functions. To remove the FFC, it is not necessary – as is normally the case with Non-ZIF systems – to operate an unlocking device, but it is sufficient to pull out the FFC with a defined amount of force.
The Y-Lock system has been qualified based on LV214 and is fully suitable for automotive use. Due to the design and functionality of the system, the use in battery systems is one of many possible applications.
